The focus «Art, Science and Technology» supports production and cooperation models at the interface of these three fields of activity. In this way, Pro Helvetia responds to the need for greater exchange between the different actors and brings research work closer to artistic practice. It offers cultural practitioners the possibility of exploring technological and scientific developments from an artistic perspective in dialogue with researchers.
Pro Helvetia develops the formats of the focus in close cooperation with established institutions and partners from the fields of science and technology. The offers of support are invitations to sound out and exploit the potential of mutual inspiration and collaboration.
Goals of the focus (2021 – 2024) are:
- Cultural practitioners deal with scientific ideas and technological concepts, take an active part in current societal debates and broaden their artistic modes of expression.
- Dialogue between cultural practitioners and researchers is facilitated through new formats and networking platforms.
- The work of cultural practitioners and researchers is enriched through new and unfamiliar perspectives.
